Room 377D - tub drain is very slow; need to clean whatever is clogging it

I loved the peaceful surroundings of the property and the wildlife. I did not appreciate the sales pitch.

Security was tight which is good. When we got in our suite, it was too hot inside It took a long time before the room cooled down. The curtains in the living room and 3rd floor were wide open so the afternoon sun heated up the place. Clean kitchen. Kitchen utensils were complete. Glad to see a peeler because we needed one that night. The outside, near the entrance door needs a little attention, saw floss picks around. Suite is big, very roomy.

We loved everything, just not long enough. Everyone was so friendly from the staff to the other guests

We really enjoyed our vacation! The 2 bedroom was very cute and clean. We were located close to the activity center and so my teenage boys were able to go back and forth safely. I also loved the location of the resort. It was close to everything! The staff was very friendly and kind. We’ll be back!

Our unit was in lesser condition than previous ones stayed at. Had lower 2 bedroom unit. Guests above us were completely indifferent to amount of noise and inconsiderate to what time it was. Will not stay again if other properties are available

Staff was kind and quick check in and out Water pool and mini golf was fun

Resort was a great place to stay in Williamsburg. My only complaint is that the check-in process involves a very annoying interaction with with concierge Shannon. They lead you to believe you’re getting a “welcome package” when in reality they want to sign you up for this information session about time shares and hold $20 for your reservation. On top of that, I was asked my household annual income and to sign that I would attend. Lastly, it is quite an assumption that I would want to leave my 2 year old in “child care” on my vacation so that I can attend the 2 hour “information session.” It was all a bit pushy for me after a 10 hour trip and left a bad taste in my mouth.

The check in process was not good. I checked in right at 4:00 (the check in time) and when finally called upon to get checked in, the attendant called me over, asked my name, and left for about 30 minutes. When he finally returned, he started the check in process. Only after he checked me in did he inform me that they were over-booked and he was waiting for a room to clear. During this time nobody came to reassure me that everything was okay or even to tell me what was going on (i was just left in limbo at the front desk).

The resort is a great place for families. This has been our 2nd year visiting the powhatan resort and it was a great experience. A pool, restaurant and park right on the premises. And so many places to visit close by. You will definitely be seeing us next year

Everything was great, except the coffee shop not being open the one day... went outside of resort to get my coffee that day.

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are very spacious. I really liked the way everything was laid out. You can hear the people above you walking around clearly. You may want to opt for a room upstairs if you are a light sleeper. It wasn’t an issue for us.

An expansive, beautifully manicured town-home/condo timeshare community surrounding a restored, 18th Century plantation house, Powhatan is a superb choice - especially for families - seeking a comfortable base for Williamsburg-area exploration. One caution... despite discounted prices headlined on Orbitz and other travel sites, expect to spend 25-40% more once "resort fees" and other small print charges are included. Even so, it's a great value.

- Great amenities - Pool area is nice - Beautifully maintained grounds - Our unit had a weird stench to it and our bed had a HUGE stain on it. It was pretty disgusting.
